Michelle Shadpour
University of Southern California
Mechanical Engineering

As a Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Southern California, Michelle Shadpour developed her technical knowledge, reinforced leadership skills, and created a network of peers through her involvement with the ASHRAE Student Branch. An internship allowed Shadpour to work on net-zero energy projects, which only confirmed her environmental interests aligned professionally and personally. “I am excited about my future as an engineer, because every day will present a new challenge that must be met with innovative solutions,” Shadpour said in her submission. “This is a field that demands continuous learning and application of technical knowledge, and while it might be tedious – to me it’s opportunity to make a difference.”
